Practice The Presence Of God

Practice The Presence Of God

Practice the presence of God
Use prayer as your weaponry 
Come to His presence with thankfulness of heart
Positioned with humility
Rest in the love of the Father
Take a deep breath and relax
Be anxious for nothing but in everything by prayer
Share honestly with Him all the facts

For He cares for you more than you know
His love has a deep penetration
He's pleased to see you've decided to come
And accepted His open invitation
Come unto me all ye that labour and are heavy laden
Take my yoke upon you and learn of me
For I am meek and lowly of heart
Your soul shall find sweet rest in me

The gravity of sin is appalling 
It has a tendency to keep us down
If we don't come to the well of Salvation
We're left thirsting on barren ground
So Lord help me pray to pray often
For we all stand in need of prayer
God take my pain and give me your gain
My time well spent then with You there!

Hallelujah what a Saviour!

About the Poet
I came to know the Lord as my personal Saviour in January of 1972. I was married on Oct 21,1966 to my wife Linda who also loves the Lord. We have ten children and now twenty-four grand children. In Aug 2012 we got the announcement of the birth of our first GREAT grand child (a baby girl). I was thrilled to find others of like precious faith and belief in Jesus Christ. Hallelujah! What a Savior! I am presently living in Champion, Alberta, Canada but we are originally from Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, Canada. That is where the poem Canadian Tribute to America was birthed. One Sunday as I walked across the city on my way to church I came to the top of a hill and looked across at Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan. After watching the events of the Sept 11 tragedy it was weighing on my heart and mind and the Lord gave me these words. We came to Calgary and when my oldest daughter saw this poem she said, �Dad, what�s this?� and I said a poem and she replied �Dad, that�s not a poem , that�s a song� and she then went to the piano and began to sing and play it. The result of which turned into a song entitled, A Canadian Tribute to America which she recorded on CD. garyjamessmith2005@yahoo.ca
